Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Thank you very much to Diane for her place. We ( my brother and I) rented it for a month and had a blast. Very well located with cute places/cafes/restaurants just around the corner. Also at the end of the street you'll find a laundromat, very convenient !!
    Wifi worked perfectly. As the TV. Kitchen is very easy to work with. We met the owner very briefly but she was very welcoming. Would recommend it to anyone.
    Loved it

  • Diane is the ultimate host and her apartment was perfect for our introduction into LA. The location of the Hip Beach Apartment is wonderful - just blocks from the beach, shops, cafes, gyms, yoga, pilates, shopping centers and amenities. It's such a vibrant neighborhood that we ended up finding an apartment to live in long-term just a few streets away - we simply couldn't leave! Diane also makes sure that you want for nothing - upon arrival we were met with fresh fruit, chocolates, toiletries and little extras everywhere. You could see that Diane had made an extra effort to ensure that our stay would be comfortable and that we would be at ease. The apartment itself is lovely, comfy beds, new Cable TV, fast internet, good heating, all appliances, great views from the back and a fully-equipped kitchen - honestly, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Diane also helped us with our move to the local area and is still in touch. A fabulous and very-much-appreciated host.

  • We had a great time in Venice. The house is situated at the top of the only hill in Venice so theres a nice view over the city out the back. Its also far enough away from the crazier side of Venice yet still in walking distance which suited us with two young children. Diane was a great host, if anything need fixing or we need help in any way Diane sorted it out straight away. I would absolutely recommend this place! I wish I was still there.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Diane's place in Santa Monica / Venice - the place was extremely comfortable and well located. Diane was a great host who was helpful and accessable. I would have no hesitation recommending Diane to other guests - Thanks Diane!!

  • It was first time to use AirBnB. I am very lucky to meet Diane who is so nice, kind and exellent. I have many worry to spend my life in foreign country. She know it and could cover every thing.
    The house has pritty good location and it takes A-10minutes-walking to beach. You can do BBQ in patio and you have a nice parking and washing machine. There are nice parks nearby it. If I have a oppotunity to stay in west LA, I use it again.

  • The apartment was a great home away from home for my husband and me while visiting our daughter's family in Santa Monica. It is a quiet, peaceful home with a comfortable bed, great shower and very well equiped kitchen. Diane had coffee and half & half for us along with a great platter of fruit. She had thoughtfully provided the neccessities that had us set up from the time we arrived late at night to enjoy our stay. Lovely place, great location smack inbetween Santa Monica & Venice.

  • My husband and I had a great stay at the hip beach apartment. It is a clean, well-kept, well-appointed apartment. Diane does an amazing job of making sure that you have everything you need and is so kind and responsive. The internet went out one night during our stay and Diane responded right away and had Time Warner there to fix it the next morning. The location is also fabulous - a short walk to the beach and lots of great food/shops on Rose Ave and Main St.

  • My husband and I stayed here with our daughter for 3 nights right after Christmas. Diane was a great hostess. She left us bottled water and prepped the house in anticipation of hosting our 5 year old with princess sheets on the twin bed, a bowling kit, beach toys and plenty of art supplies. She even set us up with some disney bath soap! So first and foremost, this place is EXTREMELY kid-friendly. The beds were comfy, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast each morning. Nice view out the back deck. Easy parking - which is a must in this neighborhood, and there was enough space for our friends to park there too when they visited. The layout of the apartment is a little odd - This is a basement apartment, and the front door opens into the 2nd bedroom (the one with the twin). Nothing bad here... it's just hard to tell this from the pictures so thought I'd share. Great location for walking to the beach, third street promenade, pier, and abbot kinney! Nice view out the back deck towards the mountains.

  • Our stay in Diane's apartment was SO great that we even decided to extend our stay 2 more months ! When we arrived there was fresh water, fruits and candies. It's such a nice present, even more after a long flight.

    The apartment is fully furnished. We were glad to have so many equipment for cooking. In fact, it's so well furnished that we never needed anything.

    About Diane, she's honestly the nicest person you can ever met. If you had any question, any problem, Diane will help you. She's always there when you need her.

I am a Los Angeles native and I love living by the beach and enjoying all the area has to offer. I also love to travel and enjoy good food and shopping at the local farmer's market.
